Things to watch for this morning: None of the events today should really make a big impact on the market.

Major Index Futures

  • Overall Summary – If there’s one sure thing about the stock market, it always seems to do what is least expected. If you thought the Nasdaq’s 1.3% jump Friday was strange and unexpected considering the tariff war between the U.S. and China, then you probably thought the Dow Jones’ 1.3% gain Monday was equally unexplainable.
  • S&P 500 futures the S&P 500 ran ahead 0.9%resistance at 2,800 and support at 2,700
  • Dow 30 futures  The Dow Jones outperformed Monday, rising 1.3%resistance at 25,500 and support at 24,000
  • Nasdaq Composite The Nasdaq dashed 0.9% higherresistance at 7,800 and support at about 7,400
  • SmallCap 2000 futures The Russell small-cap index rose 0.6%. It closed within 4 points of its all-time intraday high of 1708. support at 1610
